urban jungle éclat


Ethnic style went through countless summer interpretations
and we'll patently see it again next winter, maybe through a
peculiar psychedelic touch as in 'Poison', the latest collection
by Maria Escoté, the Catalan designer I came to have a soft
spot for since she turned 'pop' with her 'Sweet Cannibals'
collection (previous post here).


Maria stays true to her urban-tribal style with this dazzling
AW 2013-14 collection full of gorgeous digital prints creating
vivid trippy textures through sort of ink blots of different shapes
and colors that smartly mimick the multi-colored skin of poison
dart frogs living in Meso-American lush jungles.


Impressive colorful garments, mostly in bright vinyl materials,
that don't look like belonging to a winter collection, with
flared skirts, mini dresses, tight jackets and an appealing
'Carnaby street style' black & yellow trench, always
accompanied by leather caps bearing the same print 
of the outfit. They all seem to bawl: ”Look at me, 
I can be quite poisonous but you don't have 
to eat me, just to put me on!”
